The wingtip sneaker from Japan’s SOPHNET. and nonnative — along with Generic Surplus, the L.A.-based footwear brand who rounds out the design triumvirate — has become something of a seasonal fixture, with the latest release featuring a duo of suede makeups. As always, understated sophistication is the hallmark of the collaboration, highlighted by overlay panels adorned with perforated detailing and brogue edges. Tonal eyelets, padded collar and rope laces round out the details. Available in a rich blue colorway with a black rubber midsole or a two-tone navy and royal blue style on an off-white midsole, the kicks are set to drop as part of SOPHNET.’s Spring/Summer 2013 range.
